A massive manhunt is underway for an alleged gunman who is believed to be on the run in New South Wales after a police pursuit injured two officers in Victoria.
Stanley Turvey allegedly fired a gun as police attempted to arrest him at a property at Katandra West, in Victoria’s north, at midday on Monday.
He then allegedly led police on a pursuit before police ‘lost control’ of their car causing the vehicle to roll and leaving them with minor injuries.
Police continued their manhunt on Tuesday and released a photo of Turvey showing the fugitive with a distinctive grenade tattoo inked on his face.
Residents have been warned not to approach him saying they believe he could be armed.

Police allege Turvey approached detectives with a gun when they arrived at property in Katandra West near Shepparton, in northern Victoria, on Monday.
Officers challenged Turvey to drop his weapon but he allegedly fired a shot into the air before fleeing the property in a car.
Neighbour Dianne said Turvey was shirtless and yelling as he faced off with police.
‘All the police were crouched down with their guns pulled,’ she told 9News.
‘They kept saying to him, ‘Put your weapon down and put your hands behind your head.’
‘And then he just walked back and he said, ‘I’m not f***ing going back to jail again’.’
Two officers pursued Turvey but lost control of their vehicle on Creighton Road before it rolled.
The officers were taken to Goulburn Valley Health hospital with minor injuries and have since been released.
Turvey then stopped at a random residence in Youanmite where he allegedly forced a man at gunpoint to drive him to Finley in NSW.
The man was not harmed and he was released when the pair arrived at their location.
Police believe Turvey is travelling in an allegedly stolen white Toyota Hi-Lux Dual cab utility with registration 1RA-8AN.

It comes after police responded to reports a man armed with a gun assaulted a woman and stole her car on Witt Street, Yarrawonga just before 10am on Tuesday.
Police have urged anyone with information that would help in locating him to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
He is also being urged to turn himself in at any police station.
Turvey regularly boasts on social media about being part of the outlaw motorcycle gang the Finks, according to the Herald Sun.
In one video shared to Facebook, Turvey threatens a man by urging him to meet in Shepparton for a gunfight.
‘Any time you want to have a go, come to Shepparton,’ the post reads.
‘Bring whoever you like and whatever little cap gun you like because if you don’t pull the trigger and kill me, I’ll bash you to death really f—- easy.’
